Total Time: 45 minutes
2 tablespoons oyster sauce
2 tablespoons water
1 tablespoon hoisin sauce
1 tablespoon rice vinegar
1 tablespoon dry sherry, or rice wine
2 teaspoons cornstarch
1 teaspoon brown sugar
1 teaspoon reduced-sodium soy sauce
1 teaspoon sesame oil
3 teaspoons canola oil, divided
1 pound thin center-cut boneless pork chops, trimmed of fat and cut into thin julienne strips
2 cloves garlic, minced

1 8-ounce can sliced water chestnuts, rinsed and coarsely chopped
1 8-ounce can sliced bamboo shoots, rinsed and coarsely chopped
8 ounces shiitake mushrooms, stemmed, cut into julienne strips
4 scallions, greens only, sliced
1 head iceberg lettuce, leaves separated
To prepare sauce: Combine oyster sauce, water, hoisin sauce, vinegar, sherry (or rice wine), cornstarch, brown sugar, soy sauce and sesame oil in a small bowl.
To prepare stir-fry: Heat 2 teaspoons canola oil over medium-high heat in a large nonstick skillet or wok. Add pork; cook, stirring constantly, until no longer pink, about 4 minutes. Transfer to a plate. Wipe out the pan.
Add remaining 1 teaspoon oil, garlic and ginger; cook, stirring constantly, until fragrant, 30 seconds. Add water chestnuts, bamboo shoots and mushrooms; cook, stirring often, until the mushrooms have softened, about 4 minutes. Return the pork to the pan and add the sauce. Cook, stirring constantly, until a thick glossy sauce has formed, about 1 minute. Serve sprinkled with scallions and wrapped in lettuce leaves.
